For a hundred years, Marguerite has been imprisoned and used for her powerful psychic abilities. Her only relief comes from her regular visits with Thorne, her vampire lover. His every touch leaves her hungry for more..and aching for their next encounter. When Marguerite is finally set free, she returns to Mortal Earth to begin a new life for herself. She dyes her hair white-blonde, paints her nails blood-red, and seduces a sexy-hot stranger. Why can’t she stop thinking about Thorne?

Now that Marguerite is gone, Thorne craves her more than ever..and follows her to Mortal Earth. Unfortunately, he is not the only vampire who wants her. As one of three powerful women with obsidian flame abilities, Marguerite is a valuable treasure—and a dangerous weapon. For Thorne, she is a soul mate he must protect at any cost…even his own life.


Review: I hate to say this but this was the first book that I have read in this series. I guess you’d think that I was missing out on a lot of the back story but this book goes back and tells you a little about each of the past books.

I really enjoyed Thorne and Marguerite’s story. Thorne had a lot of responsibility placed on him and he had to choose between his duty and his love so he chose the one that would center him.  Thorne has been Marguerite’s savior for 100 years.   There is no way that I would want to be locked up for 100 years as a convict and have all kinds of things done to me. Thank goodness that Marguerite had Thorne to help her through some of it. If it had been me, I would already be dead.  Fate showed its sense of humor when Thorne finds out that when Marguerite is set free she is his breh.

I loved the way that the book was written. It really kept me on my toes and wondering if anything would ever go right. I just hated that it took Marguerite so long to give in to Thorne.  I could, however, understand that she wanted to just get away from it all and start all over.  The story line itself was very easy to follow. It had a lot of depth to it.

I can’t wait to read the next book. We get a little taste of the next one, which I loved. I guess now I’ll go back and read the first four! That should keep me busy.
